Alcohol with meds?: Wellbutrin (bupropion) ER is in your system 24/7; Concerta taken in the morning wears off by end of the day. That said, alcohol interacts with both meds. Best to discuss with prescribing doctor who knows your complete history. I lean towards no alcohol due to interactions with med. See: http://pubs.niaaa.nih.gov/publications/Medicine/medicine.htm I hope this helps. Best wishes.
